Staff wasn't very friendly but the food paid out: the burger was very good and fulfilling, and I think the place is quite expensive because every single item in the burger was healthy and tasty. As for the... More

Great coffee friendly service. Quirky vibe with fresh flowers and homewares to purchase. Food is fresh and delish. Cakes are tasty with a couple of healthy options.

Wow! Pleasantly surprised. I ordered the panfried smoked salmon on bread, not only was it delicious but wonderfully presented. The coffee was great too! Would definitely come back here.

Boy have Armchair Collective upped their game! I went for breakfast this morning with a couple of gal pals and had a delicious black rice and coconut porridge with drizzled something (it wasn't honey but it was sweet) and granola. The service was terrific, all the girls smiled at us and were polite, food came quickly and when I spilled... More

Love browsing the lovely selection of homewares here. Food is really good, fresh and interesting presentation. It's close to the beach, and a nice outdoor area to sit too. Good for a browse if just picking up coffee, as their are children's gifts and general homewares. The only that could improve is the coffee.
